How to Make GOOD First IMPRESSIONS*♥ (:
O1; Dress appropriately for the occasion. Make sure your clothes are modest and aren’t to revealing or tight. Keep the makeup and jewelry light. Make sure your outfit is well-coordinated and ironed.
O2; Have good body language. Your facial expressions and body language will have more effect on the person than the actual words you speak. Be polite and cordial, and make sure you’re giving the other person time to talk.
O3; Let your personality shine through. Always be yourself as related to your interests and likes. Never introduce yourself to a new person as someone else.
O4; Relax, and let the conversation flow smoothly. Never fidget or give any indication of nervousness, like talking to fast. Good posture is imperative, so remember to make sure you’re not slouching.
O5; Keep smiling. It’s a nice way to let your beauty shine through.
O6; Make eye contact with the person you’re talking too. It shows them that you’re listening to them and is interested in what they are saying. Never let your eyes or mind wander to some other matter.
O7; Let your humor and wittiness shine through. If the opportunity presents itself, tell a good joke that you’ve heard. Don’t be rude with your wittiness and don’t say a comeback for everything, even if you have one.
O8; Be interesting. Talk about neutral subjects that other people would like to listen to if they happened to join in the conversation. Most people find it admirable when someone knows about things like current world affairs or history or any other interesting and neutral topics like that.
O9; Don’t talk about yourself too much. Ask questions about the other person’s life like about their interests or likes.
1O; Find a connection between you and the person, like a common ground, and exploit that to get to more common ground. Talk about your favorite authors, or shows or movies. Just anything you all can talk about together.
11; Never brag about something in your life. You’ll come off arrogant and narcissistic. Talking about yourself and bragging about yourself are two different things entirely separated by a thin line. Try not to cross that line.
12; Talking about your hobbies and aspirations are good conversation starters. Whenever you finish talking, try to end with a question so the person has to answer. It’s a great way to keep the convo going (:
13; End on a good note. Say something like, “Nice meeting you. Hopefully we can meet up again another time.” Let them know you enjoyed their company. Swap contact information like phone numbers or email addresses.
**This tip is more of a tip for pretty much formal introductions, but these tips can be implemented into everyday life (:
